Rush Limbaugh argued on his radio program this week that the true goal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is to impeach President Donald Trump, and one way that could occur is for Democrats to flip Florida politically and retake control of the House of Representatives.
From Politics Pot:
Western Journalism reported that Rush explained that one way the Democrats can make this impeachment happen is to flip Florida politically and retake control of the House of Representatives. He said this after a caller asked him how Mueller’s investigation can be stopped.
“You’re not going to stop it,” the talk show host replied. “But the Mueller investigation is predicated on the Democrats winning control of the House and then running the articles of impeachment. If you want to stop Mueller, don’t let the Democrats win the House.”
While the Department of Justice cannot prosecute a sitting president, Mueller finding that Trump obstructed justice or made false statements regarding contacts with Russia could be used as grounds for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings.
The House would need a majority vote to make impeachment succeed. If this happens, two-thirds of the Senate must vote to convict a president in order to remove him from office. While this happening in the Senate is unlikely, Rush predicted that House impeachment by itself would damage Trump enough politically that he would not seek reelection, making him a lame-duck president.
Rush predicted that Florida will be the key to Democrats flipping the House next year.
“Remember the big hurricane that wiped out Puerto Rico? The publisher of a newspaper in Puerto Rico is reporting that, by their count, 320,000 Puerto Ricans have immigrated to the United States,” Rush said on Monday, adding that around 70 percent of them went to Florida.
He went on to estimate that there could be nearly 400,000 to 500,000 Puerto Rican immigrants coming to the mainland.
“If 60% of them register Democrat, then Florida ever voting for a Republican presidential candidate may be lost for as long as we can see,” Rush said. “And should this number of Puerto Ricans moving to Florida impact congressional elections, say, in the midterms, well, then, if you have the Democrats after the 2018 midterms running the House, then impeachment becomes a much more relevant thing.”
Rush slammed the Mueller investigation during his show on Tuesday.
“The only crimes he can find are the crimes that have occurred as a result of his bogus investigation,” he said. “They know there was no collusion with Russia. They know that the collusion with Russia occurred with Hillary and her campaign and their law firm purchasing and commissioning the Trump dossier.”
“The FBI is there (in the Russia investigation) for one reason, to get rid of Trump,” he asserted.
